the ¦l±sko-D±browski bridge near Wisłostrada - the City Centre


         The mural was painted on the shores of the ¦l±sko-D±browski bridge near Wisłostrada. You can see it while driving in the direction of the Żoliborz district.
         In the year 2009 at the Street Art Doping festival an interesting mural was painted. From afar one can notice a white and red wall. Against the red background, between two black lines, drawings of human heads and shouting mouths were painted. Next to that an anchor, the sign of the Fighting Poland, was painted against the white background.
         The mural painting was solemnly unveiled on August 1, 2009 r. the day of the 65th anniversary of the Warsaw Uprising.
         The mural place is not coincidental. Beside it you can see a plaque in honour of 45 soldiers of the 103rd company of the "Bończa" battalion of the Home Army group "Róg" who perished on August 1, 1944 as they were unsuccessfully trying to seize the bridge-head and the nearby "Schicht house".
